February Meeting Notes

We want to thank everyone for the great turn out last night. First and foremost we had roughly 100 league members at the meeting last night and 61 managers participate in last night’s vote. Thank you very much for sharing our excitement for the 2019 season. The league has re-elected Jeff Oltmanns and elected Josh Dougherty to serve the board for the next two years. Please take time to congratulate each of them as they hope to serve the league with their best efforts and intentions. We want to especially thank Doug Wagner for his many great years of service to the board and league as treasurer. His service to the league will not be forgotten. Finally thank you to Brad Tyler who took time and effort to run for the board spot. It is really great to see more people interested in being in this position.

As promised last night team placements are tentatively posted. Please view here. As you can see Monday’s is overfull and Tuesday is full. We are offering teams discounts to move up to Wednesday night from a lower night. If you’re interested in hearing more about that, and/or have questions or concerns about team placements please reach out to us sfmsps@gmail.com.

Next month’s managers meeting will be Wednesday, March 27, 2019 at 7PM. The meeting will be moving to BB’s Pub N Grill (3400 W 49th St #102, Sioux Falls). Look forward to seeing you. Please remember to get your player waivers signed and rosters filled out!

      • This will also include scoring changes and other league changes as they occur during the season in an attempt to as visible as possible with league business.
